These are the US federal tax brackets for 2021
On October 26 of 2020, the IRS announced 2021’s annual inflation adjustments for the US federal tax brackets, as well as the tax changes, provisions, and schedules.
The changes were small, but numerous tax items were adjusted.
Keep in mind that the changes don’t apply to the percentages, but the limit amount of taxable income for each segment of the bracket and the different filing statuses.
Some of the most important changes were applied to the standard deductions for each filing status:
- Married couples filing jointly will have a standard deduction of $25,100 – $300 more than last year.
- Single taxpayers and married individuals filing separately will have a standard deduction of $12,550 – $150 more than last year.
- Heads of households will have a standard deduction of $18,800 – $150 more than last year.
Something worth noting is that, just like in the previous years, there’s no limit on itemized tax deductions – although tax credits are still the best way of getting into a lower tax bracket.
